Saudi Arabia has always believed that it was the true land of Islam. However even though they consider other Muslim nations inferior, they still believe they are the direct descendants of Muhammad.
Saudi Prince Muhammad Bin Suleiman had allegedly made a controversial statement humiliating Pakistan and Indian Muslims as well.
The prince believes that Pakistanis are the slaves of the Arabs.
The prince’s statement suggests that Saudi’s look at every other Muslim country with the ‘converted-Muslim country perspective.
Saudi’s call Muslims who come from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, ‘Hindu-Muslims.’ They consider Muslims from these particular nations to have converted to Islam from Hinduism.
The Bangladesh, Indian and Pakistan Muslims are also known as ‘Al Hindi-Muskeen.’ Referring to them as second-grade Muslims. Arabs are always ‘preferred to ‘Hindu Muslims’ be it any job or top post. The top posts are always reserved for the Saudi Arabians. Muslim citizens from other nations are considered to be inferior.
A Pakistani journalist posted a letter, which showed the Saudi Defence minister referring to Pakistanis as slaves.
Tanveer Arain is a renowned Pakistani journalist who works for Dawn News, a Pakistan’s English newspaper.
Tanveer Arain posted a quote on Twitter, which shows the Defence minister referring to Pakistan as a slave country and saying that it will continue to remain a slave of Saudi Arabia forever.
The quote also said: “Indian & Pakistani Muslims grow beards to look good like us, but they look like they’ve come straight from the forest.”
It seems Pakistan is badly trapped in the current Arab conflict. It has been treading a careful path since Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries snapped diplomatic ties with Qatar after accusing the oil-rich country of supporting terrorist groups and rival Iran.
“Are you with us or with Qatar?” Saudi King Salman raised this question during a meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
